How would you describe your style? Style is a personal way of expression. Having style doesn't mean you're "in style." It is a unique way of reflecting yourself and your taste. I would say my style is different from others. I'm more daring and not opposed to wearing certain clothes. My style is edgy and riskier than others and I'm not afraid to say it.

What’s your signature item? My signature item would be any type of headpiece. I wear anything from floppy hats to a jeweled headpiece to a turban. It's just another fun way of expression.

Who inspires you? My inspiration would probably be my dad, as crazy as that sounds. He's been a fashion icon for 40 years in his industry, and not once has he been scared to wear anything. He has left the house in a … kimono with Dr. Martens boots.  If you have the right attitude, you can pull anything off. It's all about how you wear it!

Where do you shop? I do shop at a few different stores. Obviously being a typical college student, money is tight. So stores like Forever 21, Mystique, and H&M are great for budget conscious people. They have great styles for a cheap price. If you have the right eye, you will find something!

How would you describe your style? My style is a reflection of what I like and what I think is cute. I don't have one specific style — it varies with my mood, or the day, and other various factors. I like to mix current trends with my own individual touch. I think my overall style is trendy with a unique twist, it's street style with a classy flare.

 What’s your signature item? My signature item honestly is my puppy, Kush. He's a 6-pound Teacup Maltese and really just makes every outfit cuter.

Who inspires you? I get inspiration all over, a lot of celebrities and social media. I'm always in a hurry, and so I find inspiration through outfits that are easy to put together, and that are cute yet functional.

Where do you shop? Literally everywhere and anywhere, I like to shop anywhere I can get cute stuff for a good price. I do a lot of online shopping and a lot of random boutiques and stores, but Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom have been two of my favorites since I was a kid.
